More than anything I love a great workout. One where your legs are trembling the whole way through but you keep going anyway. Yesterday I was lucky enough to get one of those in. For me they don’t happen enough. Needless to say I knew I needed a great recovery drink and I made one that really did the trick. I know because today I feel great and would normally be hobbling around the house cursing under my breath. Maca really does the trick I’m telling you…you must give it a try.
My Recovery Smoothie
1 1/2 bananas
2 tsp cocoa
1 tbsp hemp protein
1 tsp vanilla rice protein
1 tbsp maca
handful of ice
Whiz everything in your magic bullet! Feel great the next day!
This smoothie was so thick and dessert like it felt like a treat. What is your favorite recovery smoothie/meal?
To make room for a photo of this morning’s breakfast creation I had to purge some photos from my iPhone. With well over 300 photos and videos taking up space it was time to clean house. I hate it when this happens. The photos are all saved on my computer but it still breaks my heart to delete photos of Lennox. Scrolling to the top, I always delete the oldest first – it’s become my ritual. Seeing how much the little guy has grown in such a short time makes me more sad and just plain proud. That little boy has grown from a little speck in my tummy to a speed crawler – gosh – that still amazes me. Now someone remind me why I chose to get the 16gb and not the 32gb iPhone. I woulda had much more space to keep those precious snapshots of my little monkey. When this phone dies, I’m goin’ big on the next one!
Peachy Carob Smoothie
1 1/2 handfuls of frozen peaches (such scientific measurement I know)
1 tsp chlorella
1 tsp maca
2 Tbsp raw organic carob powder
1 cup coconut water (just guessing, I didn’t measure)
Raw cacao nibs to sprinkle on top
Directions:Whizz in blender till peach chunks are gone. Pour into a fancy glass and sprinkle with cacao nibs. Drink some and go back for more cacao nibs. Repeat.
